4. HAVE A ROUTINE TO FOLLOW WITHOUT FAIL
Organized people complete their morning routine in the same order every single day. The more that they complete their routine in the same order, the easier it’ll be to get up every morning and keep the rhythm.
Blogger & pro-photographer Casey Osmundson says, “The more you practice completing a task, the less you’ll have to consciously think about each step. What once seemed like a challenge will soon feel more like second nature.”
When you start to do this, you’ll find that it takes less effort to get out of bed and get everything you need doing in the morning done. This means that if you’re chronically late, you’ll start to be more organized and on time.
5. SET REALISTIC GOALS FOR YOURSELF
Trying to change your entire routine at the drop of the hat may only lead to more stress. However, setting realistic goals will help you achieve all the things that need to be done in increments. Work on one habit that you want to change, and once you have that down, you’ll be ready to move onto the next one.
Founder and president of Supreme Organization, Jodie Watson states, “Your routine should be the bare-bones basics that you need to complete to keep life running smoothly before you rush out the door. If you have other must-do tasks each day, think about how you can simplify or spread them out differently on your schedule.”
Once you have a habit established, you won’t have to work on keeping it, which will give you the power to start working on another one. Organized people keep realistic goals for themselves so that they can stay on top of things without worrying.
